This is still worth my daily check in to find out what's happening in my area and to connect with neighbors. But the ads everywhere (beginning, middle, and later on) are repetitive and unwelcome. Wish I had a fast forward, visual mute, or opt out button to make the Nextdoor experience return to being more enjoyable. Also some of the reviews for these ads posted under different "neighbors' " names are simply copy and paste rather than sincere sharing of experiences with the product. Even better would be to make a separate category for these so that it would be an option for those who might be interested.
“Only option for connecting with neighbors... can be very useful...”

There is much good to be said about this site. But first... the negative. Hijacking of space by those who post obsessively about lost and found pets is definitely irritating. They are asked to post on other sites and in a special category but don't honor that request. Many people in our neighborhood have left this valuable site because of these kinds of posters.
Now the good... young moms are finding others to meet with, information about community events are easy to find, sales of household items are advertised and purchased by nearby neighbors, free items are given and traded, news of home and car invasions and other criminal activities is circulated quickly, names of trusted tradespersons, local household and childcare help, gardeners, etc. are posted, Meet With a Cop get togethers are advertised, and, currently, sustainability groups are being organized to grow and trade backyard garden produce with other interested neighbors.
Overall, in spite of the endless pet posts, this is an enjoyable and useful way to connect with neighbors and keep informed of what is happening in the neighborhood.
